This is so much to do from a distance. Here are some places I was asked to look for apartments. Metro cuadrado, Galerias and Chapinero. I will be traveling with a 9 year old. I am now considering if it would be worth considering doing a home stay, although I have read many negative reviews about home stays. I am just looking for advice on the best options for myself and my child...I will be staying for Protected content if I like it and/or find a good job I will consider staying longer. Also, I must consider safety and the ability to get around. How does one get around? Bus?
